Corona is a city of 157,000 residents located in NorthWestern Riverside County. Years ago, it had the distinction of being the lemon capital of the world. There is even a museum in the town that represents the role of the lemon in their history.
Homeowners in Corona are familiar with the surrounding area, including the condition of the soil. Expansive clay can affect the foundation, causing it to settle when dry or buckle when wet. Fortunately, there are options for repairing the foundation and Dalinghaus Construction can help.
Common Signs of Foundation Problems In Corona, CA
Foundation problems may be common in Corona, but they should not be considered a normal occurrence. Recognizing the signs will often allow you to get the help you need before the issue is advanced.
The floors in the home are often one of the first indications of foundation problems. As the foundation settles, the problem can get worse.
The walls can begin to separate from the floors and ceilings as the foundation continues to settle.
The frames for the windows and doors can twist as the foundation problems occur. This can cause the windows and doors to stick when they open and close.
The chimney usually sits on a portion of the foundation that is not well supported. It is also heavy, so it may be one of the first parts of the home to experience problems.
Retaining walls can also be affected by expansive soil. When the soil is wet, it expands and can put pressure on the wall. When it is dry, it can sink and allow the retaining wall to sink with it.
Wall cracks can appear when concrete cures but they can also appear due to a shifting foundation. Those cracks are more likely to appear on foundation walls and window/door frames under pressure.
Common methods for foundation repair
Just like any other construction task, there are certain methods for foundation repair that are often seen from one project to the next. These can include underpinning, crack repair, and a number of other tasks that are listed below.
Foundation Repair Services in Corona, CA
We have been helping our neighbors in the Corona, CA area for over a decade. Even before we founded Dalinghaus Construction, we worked for years in the construction industry. We can apply our experience and expertise to your project when repairing your foundation.
Underpinning is a common foundation repair service offered in Corona, CA. It involved driving piers into the ground to bedrock or competent soil to stabilize the foundation. We can also use this method to raise the foundation hydraulically.
Cracks can form as the foundation shifts and sinks. They can also form due to hydrostatic pressure from the surrounding soil. In either case, we can repair the underlying problem and then fix the cracks with pins and epoxy injections.
Differential settlement occurs when a foundation sinks at a different rate in one or more areas. When it occurs, the foundation can be leveled using push or helical piers, driven into the earth to stable soil or bedrock. After being attached to the foundation, we can lift it using hydraulics.
Each crawlspace repair job is unique, but they often include structural support repair and replacement, pest control, insulation replacement, and the installation of a vapor barrier.
Most foundation problems can be repaired but, on occasion, the damage is enough that a foundation replacement is considered. This is often done by temporarily jacking up the structure and rebuilding the foundation underneath it.
Push piers and helical piers can be used to support and even raise a foundation. They are typically used for foundations after construction when the soil is incompetent, but deep foundation systems can also be installed before construction.
Our foundation repair services are not limited to residential buildings. We also offer the same options for commercial buildings in Corona and the surrounding area.
